In business since 1999, Discovery Organics is an independently owned Canadian distributor of Certified Organic and Fair Trade produce.
We passionately work to promote Certified Organic and Fair Trade by building relationships with small scale farmers here at home, as well as abroad.
We serve hundreds of customers, including natural food retailers and wholesalers across Western Canada and the Canadian North.
Our Buying Philosophy:
We got into this business because we wanted to help small scale Certified Organic farmers here at home gain access to the larger commercial marketplace, and to ensure their families and communities thrive. Over the past decade or so, we have endeavoured to do this, step by step, with over ninety B.C. farms.
Our hearts still belong to the small scale growers, family farms and agricultural co-ops. We have visited dozens of farms across B.C., working with growers to see them move to larger and more financially sustainable operations.
We feel encouraged by the impressive increase in consumer demand for Certified Organics and local. We also acknowledge that we might not be able to grow all our own food year round. Even more so now, as our climate changes, no harvest is a safe bet.
So over the years, we have extended our relationships with small scale farmers to include farms down the Pacific Coast, through Washington, Oregon and California, then on to Mexico and South America. Together, this network of growers keep us all fed, year round, and for this we are grateful.
